Necessary Blood 9

It's the blood of Christ which alone can atone for your sins. Now, I know this is a blog to celebrate reformed theology, and I believe that most people who are reading this are professing Christians, but I also know that in all probability there will be tares among the wheat, and there will be people reading this who are not Christians.

Necessary Blood 8

When we talk about propitiation, we're talking about what the blood of Jesus did for the Father. He satisfies the demands of God's justice. In propitiation, the atonement of Christ is looking towards the Father, to satisfy His justice, to satisfy His holiness, that the Father may be just and the justifier. So propitiation looks toward that action of satisfaction that the atonement of Christ accomplishes. But it does more than that.

Necessary Blood 7

Do you remember the very first act of redemption that God made for His people? Do you remember the very first experience of guilt that any human being ever had? There in the garden when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, we were told that instantly their eyes were opened, and they realized that they were naked, and they were ashamed. They became the first fugitives. They fled from God’s presence.
